Aneta and Ben: Coming Home.

Aneta and Ben could not have been further from home when they fell in love. The Canadian-born airline attendant, and the UK-born television producer met in Dubai, and the attraction was instant. Although the cosmopolitan romance was almost otherworldly, for Aneta, getting married was like coming home. The wedding happened at Niagara-on-the-Lake, near Anita’s family orchard. Needless to say, she knew just how to make the most of everything the region has to offer—not to mention her own sister. Angelica Sala, is the creative talent behind Simply Beautiful Decor, one of the premier event design companies in Niagara. The reception was held at Chateau des Charmes, the Bosc family’s award winning winery, couched in the midst of the Niagara countryside. Angelica transformed the venue with light and colour, resulting in a setting reminiscent of Monet, one of Ikonica Director Jackson Huang’s favorite artists. For the bride and groom pictures the limestone amphitheatre, gardens and fountains of the Oakes Garden Theatre made for an elegant backdrop.


Melanie and Dale: Los Angeles Vogue Meets Hollywood Vintage.

Melanie, originally from Toronto, and Dale, an architectural photographer, chose Jackson Huang to shoot their LA wedding. Jackson was pleased to take the trip to California and brought Ikonica associate photographer, Michael Grills, to accompany him on this assignment. Melanie and Dale showcased the best of the city in their wedding. Melanie readied at the sleek SLS at Beverly Hills Hotel, and Dale at the “country-kitsch” Farmer’s Daughter Boutique Hotel. The reception was held at LA’s eco-friendly, 100% sustainable, vintage-furnished special events venue wryly dubbed, the Smog Shoppe. Gilly Flowers and Events provided imaginatively original, lush, seasonal arrangements of orchids, fiddleheads, hydrangeas and poppy seed pods. Debra Parr and Claudia Romani of Amazing Grace Event Planning brought all the elements together and executed Melanie and Dale’s fete with poise. What a day! It was playfully innovative in an unexpected way. Jackson is looking forward to shooting Melanie and Dale’s second wedding which will be held here in Toronto.


Jackson Huang’s Japan Portfolio

A few weeks ago we posted some of Gillian’s images from Japan. This month we have a few samples from Jackson Huang’s personal work arising from that same destination assignment.


Natalie & Yoshiro: Traditional Shinto Wedding


A late April wedding brought Jackson and Gillian to Kanazawa, Japan where they had the pleasure of photographing Natalie and Yoshiro’s traditional Shinto ceremony. Kanazawa is located centrally on the main island of Japan, with views of both the mountains and the sea.

The ceremony took place at Oyama shrine, among serene strolling gardens with ponds and bridges. Natalie’s traditional headdress, ornate kimonos and gowns created a striking focal point. View their slideshow for more photos.
